Adaptive Phenotypic Plasticity:
Steve Bednarski asks:
Is there a difference in nutrient uptake and digestive efficiency between eating your food cold and hot? Seems like an awkward question, but here is the reason why I bring this up. I normally eat leftovers for lunch each day, let’s say today was chicken, broccoli, and avocado, all refrigerated after dinner last night. When I break for lunch, lately been questioning whether or not I should be microwaving my meals, so I have been eating it all cold. When eating protein especially, whether chicken, steak, pork…I feel as if I need to chew much longer to break down the meat fibers, and then it seems to sit longer in my stomach and keeps me feeling fuller longer. If it is true that cold food takes longer to break down, this would be a huge benefit to keeping the insulin response down for meals, and on the opposite side, ingesting post-workout nutrition heated may help nutrients hit your system faster for quicker recovery?
I guess I am not looking for an actual answer, but you guys seem to have the resources to look into this, and I thought it might be beneficial to the PA community. Also, if this is a little too geeked out, I understand.
